PM ‘determined’ after forgiving those behind ‘murder attempt’

Prime minister Hun Sen on Monday said he has forgiven those responsible for an attempt on his life 20 years ago, using the anniversary to further express his determination to prevent any “coup” or “colour revolution” from taking place in Cambodia.

Posting on his Facebook page, he said that Monday marked 20 years since an attempted assassination on him in Siem Reap province.
